    Can I ask what you thought of AS Maths?
    Whilst choosing my AS subjects people would always say how difficult A level maths was. Here is my take on things: Whilst it is a considerable step up from GCSE, and there's no doubt that some of the concepts are a little difficult to understand when first introduced, there is not actually THAT much to learn! For example, my P1 module consisted only of simple trigonometry, sequence and series, coordinate geometry, integration and differentiation (the first three being not much more difficult than GCSE). Furthermore, it is possible to achieve a maths a-level taking modules in Decision maths and statistics, etc, which consists of little more than simple algorithms and plugging numbers into seemingly complex equations (so I've heard). A module in mechanics can be very difficult, however, unless complimented with physics to as level. All in all, (I know it is a cliche), but maths can be a very rewarding subject, and if you have some mathematical ability then i would highly recomend it. Its the further mathematicians you want to watch out for.......

    Thank you, I didn't really know exactly what you do in the subject, so now I know but I keep getting conflicted oppinions about Maths but what you've said goes on the posative side I'm guessing A-Levels/ AS-Levels are not like GCSE however is there any good books that help with the course?

    The only books that you really need are the module text books. They have loads of questions and examples, and they explain things really clearly. Mine did, anyway.
